Two recent studies investigated the risk of sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL) after COVID-19 vaccination. In the first study, vaccination was associated with a slightly higher risk of SSNHL in a large Israeli population. But a second study, published in the same issue of JAMA Otolaryngology–Head & Neck Surgery, found no increased SSNHL incidence after vaccination in the US.
